Asked by Jul 14, 2016 at 01:50 AM about the 1998 Dodge Ram 1500 2 Dr ST Standard Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 98 ram 1500 5.2 litre when tranny shifts
into passing gear it actually loses speed rather
than picking up and going wondering what could
be the issue

1 Answer

the first thing and least expensive would be to check how old the fuel filter is ,the other thing could be a plugged exhaust.the most common problem with that symptom that came into my transmission shop was the first.it only shows up when you put a higher demand on the fuel supply.you can't duplicate it by reving the engine.
